25 Hours of Words - video!

Working to raise money to send himself and his fellow Portland Poetry Slam Team members to the national slam championships, Sam Teitel is presently well into his 25 hours of words.

Earlier this evening, as he began his effort, in which he is reading and speaking for 25 hours straight (mostly in Monument Square, but then moving up to the North Star Music Cafe in the early evening for the usual weekly Port Veritas weekly slam/spoken-word event), we caught up with him and donated $10 to the cause.

For the donation, we got 10 minutes of his time, in which he would read anything we chose. Naturally, we chose tongue-twisters - pages of them, under the title "To Limber Up Sam's Lips And Lingua."

Sam was a great sport about it, and even let us video the whole thing. Take a gander, and then head over to Monument Square and give him a few bucks for the effort. (Give him enough and he might even read some more tongue-twisters for you - I left the massive stack of them in his care.)
